Identical Twin Sisters Each Give Birth On The Same Day Miles Apart
We’ve all heard of the mysterious connection twins often possess — from feeling each others’ pains and pleasures and having the same experiences while thousands of miles apart from one another.
Well, these two sisters’ wonder twin powers activated with a fury when not only did they conceive and carry their babies around the same time, but they gave birth at the exact same moment while states and states apart.
People:Identical twins Sarah Mariuz and Leah Rodgers have shared everything from clothes to toys over the years, but never did the sisters think they would give birth on the same day – let alone at the exact same time.
The 35-year-old women both welcomed their firstborn children into the world on June 30 at 1:18 a.m. in their respective cities. Rodgers gave birth to Reid Joseph in Denver, Colorado, one hour before her sister’s baby, Samantha Lynne, was born in La Jolla, California.
“It’s that magical twin connection I suppose,” Mariuz tells PEOPLE. “There have just been certain things in our life where things just match up – it’s odd.”
She adds, “We didn’t plan being pregnant at the same time. But our journeys aligned, even giving birth! Twins have a special bond, it’s hard to explain.”
“It’s a really cool thing to be able to share,” says Rodgers. “The adventure will only continue as our babies share the same birthday like we did! We can’t wait for them to grow up together.”
That twin connection is strong! Congrats to these two and the “twin cousins” they’re raising.
